New Internationalist books and publications

Reviews

Me and my friends called the NI Planner "The Ultimate Planner". It has drawings, photos, street art, doodles, quotes and all sorts of things to look and stare while you plan your day, all carrying a message for the mind to think through. It is weekly and therefore it has not much space to write for each day but that makes you take note of only the important things of the day with just a few words. At the beginning, there are some worthwhile websites like international organizations, human rights, environment/climate change and others and some holiday dates (internationally!). At the end, there are some metro maps (NYC USA, London UK, Barcelona Spain and others), some space for contacts, empty space for your own drawings and thoughts. A beautiful combination for a planner. - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review.

"If it's as good as last year's, then it'll be brilliant: colourful, interesting to flick through, quirky... You'll be so organised simply because it is so much fun to use!! What was it like inside last year: 1 week per page, lots of photos / street art / cartoons / quotes / tube maps for some major cities / a bit of space for contacts / year planner for the current & following year on double page spreads / facts about the world / a number of human rights, environmental etc type organisations listed / movies to inspire you / holidays, etc." - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review.

This diary/planner combines a practical weekly diary with images of action and activism - an exciting collection of photos and illustrations to reflect the cultural richness of our world.

Drawing on New Internationalist’s experience of creating high quality illustrated diaries and calendars using recycled materials - this weekly diary is for those who swim against the tide. It’s highly practical, and filled with illustrations, street art, paintings, poems, doodles and more, all submitted by young artists from around the world, giving an insight into the worlds they live in, come from, visit and create.

It’s also a diary with no other competitor, as it breaks the usual mould of using a fixed structure and design every year. Presenting quirky and creative ways to represent injustices, humor, politics, love and life in the world today, it will appeal to students and young people interested in counter-culture, dissent and protest.

Each year a new designer is given freedom to create a unique look for this great diary. This year the designer/editor is Jason Koen, from Adelaide, South Australia, currently traveling and working in Canada.

Also includes listings of international festivals and activist organizations, fascinating ‘number nuggets’ and subway maps (including London, Amsterdam, Sydney, NYC).

Printed on recycled paper by a printer holding environmental accreditation ISO 14001
